MPAA Chairman & CEO lauds friendship established between both industries at gala evening of 2nd China International Co-production Film Screenings

On October 26, a series of Chinese co-production screenings kicked off with a special gala evening at Twentieth Century Fox's Zanuck Theater in Century City, Los Angeles to an audience of approximately 300 U.S., Chinese and international film industry executives.

Christopher Dodd, Chairman and CEO, Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and Jim Gianopulos, Chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox Film co-hosted the event, with special guests, Tong Gang, Director-General of the Film Bureau of China's State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), and James Cameron, director of Avatar and Titanic.

"Over the past few years, the film industries in the U.S. and China have committed to laying down stepping stones to building a successful partnership between our two great film communities," said Christopher Dodd. "Appraising the relationship today, it's fair to say that those stepping stones have become a firm and well-trodden path."

"As we look ahead to developing a truly globally-integrated film market within China, increased collaboration in the form of co-productions promises a bright future. It is my hope that we can continue to build on the friendship and cooperation we have established over the years to create a market environment that will sustain long-term growth for both film industries."

Tong Gang, who also lead the Chinese delegation attending the screenings, said, "Our work with the MPA and its member studios has helped cultivate an ever-growing professional talent base active in film co-production, and I commend the artists who have brought us such a great variety of movies. We hope exchange programs and events such as this will allow American audiences to see more high quality co-production films. We also hope movies such as these will inspire more studios to participate in Sino-American film co-productions and in turn, continue to help elevate quality and standards."

James Cameron said, " I think we all understand that the Chinese film market is growing so rapidly, not only as an internal market for its own filmmakers, but as a market for Hollywood films and international films to play there. It's an incredibly exciting time. I've been to China a number of times over the last couple of years and I'm literally stunned by the rapid pace of change there, and the opportunity for those of us here and the filmmakers there to work together and really forge something new."
